In Midst of the Worst, the Best of Times brings together a number of works that primarily reflect on the shifting limitations of our spaces and the bending of our perception of time caused by the unaccustomed realities brought forth due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show revolves around the domestic and familiar, around the artists’ studios and their homes. With all the works made during the lockdown period, the presentation is systematized as a journal of changes, adaptations and reactions through which the artistic processes reveal intimate exchanges with the world at large.
In Midst of the Worst, the Best of Times is conceived in a cooperation with Anca Poterasu Gallery, Bucharest. The event is part of SUMO and has been kindly supported supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute Prague, the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic Arts Grant, the Culture Fund of Czech Republic Arts Grant, the Prague City Hall’s Cultural and Arts Grant and Key Promotion.
